The Evenflo Company, Inc. (Evenflo), along with U.S National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (“NHTSA”) and Transport Canada are recalling certain Evolve 3-in-1 Combination Booster Seats, model number 34411700 manufactured February 26, 2015, to February 9, 2016 and model number 34411741 manufactured May 27, 2015, to February 9, 2016.
The affected seats have a button for adjusting the harness tightness. The child in the seat can access this button and loosen the harness without the caregiver’s knowledge. If the child is able to loosen the harness, they may not be properly secured in the event of a crash, increasing their risk of injury.
Evenflo is providing, at no charge, a remedy kit that will prevent child access and activation of the harness adjustment button. The remedy kit includes a replacement harness adjustment button assembly and installation instructions. To determine if your child’s seat is included in this recall and to order a remedy kit, please visit www.evolve.evenflo.com or call our ParentLink Consumer Resource Center at 1-800-233-5921 (US)/ 1-800-265-0749 (Canada). Please do not return your child’s seat to retailers.
If your child is not accessing and activating the harness adjustment button, then the Evolve may be used safely in harnessed mode until the remedy kit is installed. If your child is accessing the harness adjustment button in harnessed mode, then the seat should not be used until you install the remedy kit. Please remember that if your child meets the height and weight requirements for the belt-positioning modes (stages 2 and 3), then the seat may be used safely in these modes.
